We Are All Made of Light

We Are All Made of Light is an immersive audio-visual experience that conceptually navigates the boundaries of human perception as a journey through universal scale. Through the combination of light, sound and space the audience is guided through the limitations and nature of perception that underlie the construction of human awareness. Our senses serve us with the units of experience from which we are able to construct our reality. Visuals, ranging from the human scale to the infinite, are complemented by a syncopated soundscape of natural ambience and charging electronic rhythm. This excursion through the scalar relationship of the human and the universe frames existence beyond the brink of our senses, challenging our definition of connectedness and a wider conception of truth. As we casually construct collective truths from fragments in our environment, it is important to remember the phenomena that exists beyond the threshold of our senses. This experience continues the lineage of transcending beyond the quotidian. Becoming attuned to the spectrum of our own perception allows us to better know ourselves, enabling us to enhance our connection to each other as we collectively construct our reality. We are united by the universal energy that flows through all.
